Legacies

By remembering Bangor University in your will, you can ensure that the wealth you have accumulated during your lifetime continues to benefit others. 

A Word from our Vice-Chancellor

“Since the University was established in 1884, Bangor University has benefitted from the philanthropy of generous individuals and organisations. The foundation of the University College of North Wales, which included donations from the local quarrymen who made voluntary contributions from their weekly wages, was a direct result of a campaign for higher education provision in Wales and was enabled by donors at all levels. These donors saw the importance and need of an educational institution and Bangor’s success today is a testament to the foresight and ambition of our founding supporters.

Bangor University’s internationally recognised expertise stretches from long-established programmes in the arts and humanities, business and social sciences, physical and natural sciences, and health and behavioural sciences to new areas such as medical sciences. We are proud that findings from our excellent research benefits the local community as well as being recognised regionally, nationally and internationally.

To help us to continue to provide opportunities for our students and to enhance the quality of our teaching and research, I would like you to consider the role you could play by pledging to leave a bequest.

Legacy gifts support many areas of our work, including scholarship and bursary awards, academic posts and programmes, and library resources. They also help to preserve and enhance our endowment and our architectural heritage, such as the Grade I listed Main University Building. The generous commitments of our legacy donors help us to plan for the future with confidence.

Bangor University has achieved great success since its inception and, with your help, we can ensure our continuing excellence.

Thank you.”
